NO, it isn’t Star Wars, thankyouverymuch.

It’s a new project — something that I’ve been faffing around since 2014 and wrote about it to you all all of you back then (see “Why am I toying with this idea?“).

Shutting off comments after 30 days

Saturday 16 April 2016, 7.22am HKT


FROM THE MANAGEMENT

All comments are now closed after 30 days of posting.

This is to control spam and general prevention of identity theft through hacking from the comment areas and meta links (like the admin log-on links).

The main aim for me is to control the trolling comments on old posts and other troublemaking. We all have 24 hours in the day; the rest is up to us.

This doesn’t affect upvoting and likes, both of which remain fully functional.

To secure your WordPress.com site:—

  1. Go to your Admin Dashboard
  2. On lefthand menu, click Settings > Discussion
  3. In “Other comment settings,” tick “Automatically close comments on articles older than [30] days
  4. Scroll down and click “Save changes” button
  5. Done!

I highly recommend you do the same for your site now.

Pathetic pansy-ass 2016

Sunday 28 February 2016, 5.35am HKT


THAT’s exactly the problem.

Try to schedule a post. Then misfired at the go-get. Then salvage the thing by adding rubbish to the empty post. A great start for the first post for 2016.

Please don’t remind me that my last post was a depressing 95 days ago.
